Stretching can be VERY bad for your health (Read 3519 times)

    Proof:

     

    I was just doing a stretch called Swiss Ball Lower Back Stretch (recommended by Pfitzinger) after an upper body strength session. When trying to roll back to the normal position I have no idea what happened, but the f....ng ball rolled away under my back and I hit the wall of the room with the back of my head causing such a hard bang that my neighbour got alarmed (it's a separate house).

     

    Well, fortunately I did not hit the actual brick wall but there is a second wall made of some sort of DM or so and and tehre is a layer of glass wool in between. But mates, the next time I will out on the web cam and post it on Youtube X'D

    I am tired? That's besides the point. It's simply that I just have to."

              Is a swiss ball like a wiffle ball?

                There's more to the swiss than cheese.

                  Depends on the curves.

                            When I started running a year ago, a friend told me that his strategy for races was to find a cute girl running at the right pace and just stay behind her the entire race "taking in the scenery".  Unfortunately for me all the women are faster than me Sad

                              I've never seen her there.  Restraining order and all. 

                               

                              Have seen the governor's (now ex-governor's) wife just two weeks ago though.  This is not her either.
